You have some really nice bikes. I tried looking for a way to list mine at bottom of each post but have failed to find the utility. Anyway, I agree, the new updates to this Paramount were professionally done and sensible. Only area of concern is chrome quality at the BB shell. It looks a little rough.

Thanks ggl! I'm really happy with them. The only one I'm getting a bit tired of is the Raleigh faux Team...I'd like a real 753 one.

Go to settings and edit signature...you can list 'em how you want.

Many thank, Kon. I don't know much about Raleigh but there is a nice Team for sale out here in Chicago. Go to https://chicago.craigslist.org/chc/bik/1879944807.html and see if it is what you are looking for. A bit pricey but if it is the right one...

Thanks...that's not a "real" team bike, but I appreciate you telling me about it. Horrendously over priced as well.

I haven't decided what to do with it. It's far too large for me and the parts are too large for me as well (135-140mm stem, 175mm cranks). I'm leaning towards selling it hole as parting this out seems like a sin.
If it were a 60 or larger I'd love to have a DeRosa....Nice Bike

Oh, too bad about it not being the correct Team. For a minute, I thought I had one for you.

Prologue with Sante on Chicago CL

https://chicago.craigslist.org/wcl/bik/1880009108.html

1987 Schwinn Prologue Race w/Santi, almost NOS - $700 (Carol Stream)

Date: 2010-08-04, 8:45AM CDT
Reply to: sale-njvuq-1880009108@craigslist.org [Errors when replying to ads?]

In my never ending quest to find awesome bikes I have finally come up with something pretty cool. I got this bike from a older gentleman who retired from Schwinn in 1991 after working for them for over 35 years. I felt like a kid in a candy store going through all of his NOS Crank sets, derallieur's, clothing, seats, grips, handlebars, bar wrap, and all his Paramount NOS parts-Campy stuff, clothing, Helmet covers, full body team biking gear etc..
After looking up information on the bike that is pictured and for sale, I have confirmed his story. He told me that only 300 were ever made and maybe 20 of them came with the Santi group set. He added that I would never be able to find one in this condition EVER. It is in MINT condition and was maybe ridden 5 times.
If you are interested in the bike and would like to see it, give me a call at 630-400-0235.

Reply to: sale-tgwjb-1878618629@craigslist.org [Errors when replying to ads?]

https://chicago.craigslist.org/chc/bik/1878618629.html

Handmade vintage road bike. Frame custom built by South African Frame builder Francois Du Toit. A fine piece of colonial cycling history. One of a kind bike with a nice mix of quality parts. 56.5cm seat tube…55cm top tube

Standover Height is 31 1/2”. Good for someone 5’8” to 6’ 1”

Lugged hand-brazed steel frame with unique Oria tubing (similar to Columbus/ Reynolds)

7 speed Shimano 105 indexed Shifting.

Shimano 105 Crankset

Mavic MA2 700c wheels

3TTT Bars and seatpost

White Selle Turbo Saddle

French CLB brake calipers- Dia-compe levers

No pedals in pics, but I have few to choose from. I can also throw in some white brake hoods, as the current hoods are a little worn.

Fully tuned, fast, and ready to ride.
$350. Price is firm. Cash and Serious Inquiries only



Thanks for looking

Unless it's my grail bike, I really can't justify purchasing any more gems to flip, although this could be a nice, quick and easy sale. I spoke to the owner on this one and it sounds like it's around 54cm-56cm. It was a garage find and it has small areas of slight surface rust (didn't sound too bad). It also sounds like it's fully outfitted in a Shimano 600 group.

Holland Track Frame - 58 cm

Please buy this before my kids talk me into it. Looks outstanding in the pic!

Custom Holland track frame 58cm - $300 (Robbinsdale)

Reply to: sale-4cgkx-1880130445@craigslist.org [Errors when replying to ads?]

This frame comes with a seatpost, headset and fork. It is built for track use only and is a great riding bike. Super stiff and sharp handling. Perfect bike for a begginer at track racing. Few paint chips, this is a 1996 built frame, still very solid and maybe the most stout track specific frame in the metro.

I also might strip it and try trading the frame for one that fits better...we'll see.
I wrestled for a couple days over whether or not I wanted to use up all of my bike kharma and finally sent a PM. I understand if I'm too late.

If you're interested in the frame, we can talk when/if I finally get a 753 frame. I'd use all of the parts I currently have on the Professional.
